Success Coach & Corporate Wellbeing Trainer, Melanie Pritchard is sharing her story of lockdown and the Covid pandemic in a story entitled “Coming Home”.
Just before the pandemic hit, Melanie had a sixth sense she needed to leave London fast. When national lockdown was announced, with no home in sight, she dug deep into her coaching toolkit and looked for the “probortunity” – the opportunity within the problem. On a geographical and spiritual quest to find her true north, she embarked on a deep dive journey to the rural wilderness, re-visiting sacred reminders within herself of what was important to her; boundaries, routine, rest and reflection. Testing her in ways unimaginable, Covid19 was a true wake-up call, reconnecting Melanie to her true self and her soul’s calling.
Melanie’s mantra following her lockdown experience is:
“At moments of change, trust your instincts and make decisions that align with your leading values to optimise your happiness and growth.”
With this book project she believes that it is everyone’s individual role to play our parts in creating the new era and invites people to join in community to do so, leveraging the knowledge, expertise and insights of this book, which will start empowering conversations. She promises that readers will enjoy reading this collection of 25 uplifting perspectives.
Here is what Kim O’Neill – Confidence & Interview Coach said about the book: “What another great way to connect to people in the midst of “social distancing!” I love reading about the positive and deep transformation people are experiencing through health crisis. This book has plenty of that. If you’d like more hope; to know you’re not alone; or to be inspired to see a deeper gift through unexpected challenges the pandemic brought you, this book is great for that”.

This book is part of a series that has been born through inspiration. Through the lockdown new stories emerged and the world seems to have shifted over-night. Many individuals have faced extreme challenges in these times and we have brought together the voices of this historic era. What was deemed normal has been questioned and shattered. All of a sudden, the impossible became possible, new ways of working were established and for the first time, we appreciated people who were working on the front line.
